Jason smiled at Angela when she congratulated him. "Yeah, thanks. Maybe if we succeed and everything returns to normal, I can finally get some use out of it." He continued walking along. Angela... it still felt like a dream to him. He expected to wake up any minute now. Out of all the people he could have met, he met his best friend. Or... someone who used to be his best friend. He sighed, wishing Angela was her old self. It was probably for the best that she wasn't, though.
If she had been herself, she may very well be dead. Jason thought that he probably wasn't his old self either. Which was also a good thing. He gazed forward. They certainly had a long journey ahead of them. Maybe they would bond again during the trip. Jason didn't count on it though. He believed that he and Angela were both too far gone to be compatible as friends anymore. But maybe that wasn't all true. He and Angela HAVE bonded a bit in the short time they discovered each other.
Maybe it wasn't all lost.
